Unbelievable government in action - the IRS is targeting the American Legion. getting a slight rap on the knuckles and a culprit promoted for targeting the Tea Party and other conservative groups unexpectedly did not deter such behavior at the IRS.
Via The Daily Caller;
The Internal Revenue Service is targeting the veterans’ organization the American Legion, and a U.S. senator believes that Lois Lerner — a key figure in the IRS scandal – is to blame.“The IRS now requires American Legion posts to maintain dates of service and character of service records for all members… The penalty for not having the required proof of eligibility is, apparently, $1,000 per day,” the American Legion stated...“On the heels of Americans’ anger over revelations that the IRS intentionally targeted certain groups, it has been brought to my attention that the IRS is now turning their sights toward our nation’s veterans,” Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran said. “The IRS seems to be auditing veteran service organizations by requiring private member military service forms.”
The scariest thing about this is that an expanding IRS targeting scandal means that eventually, everybody could be in their sites. Talk about control.
